GKrellM


GKrellM, GIO and Event Loops

GKrellM

While maintaining GKrellM for Windows I have found several things in the code that I wanted to improve. Apart from the Preferences Dialog which needs quite a bit of cleanup, the biggest offender both in terms of portability as well as readability is the socket code.

GKrellMd as a service

GTK+ GKrellM

As some of you might know, Windows has something similar to daemons, its so called “services”. Lately I have been able to find some free time and managed to make a true Windows service out of gkrellmd.

GKrellM 2.3.1 in the works

GTK+ GKrellM

I’m currently updating my build system and will look into some of the bugs that I found in the last GKrellM for Windows release. I also spotted a few problems with the new release (mainly clock/calendar formatting) so it will take some more time before I can release something usable.

GKrellM 2.3.0 for Windows released

GTK+ GKrellM

Today I built and packaged GKrellM 2.3.0 for Windows. It is available both in form of a handy installer as well as plain Zip-File. As this is the first release made by me I’m very interested in any kind of feedback, even if it’s just as short as “it works” :)
